The places we end up at!
Yusuf Jan, CEO of Mixit Technologies, and I were invited to the set of The First Blast (a daily show on Dawn News) last week.
The First Blast team is starting a show on careers, the opportunities that exist, what kids and their families should keep in mind when selecting a field of study, etc.Thanks to Hafza, the TFB Producer/Director and her team for embarking on this journey.
I was really pleased to hear that TFB were going to do this. As we all know, career counseling is something that is sorely missing in this country. Although this will not replace the need for counseling at schools and universities, it will provide an overview of the the new careers that are opening up in the ever-changing landscape. It will start a conversation with kids and their families about the opportunities out there and what kind of talent, mindset, skills and training is required.
Yusuf and I were asked to come in and talk about the IT space. The show will be running soon (note to myself: must find out when). Until then, consider this a teaser – a photo of Yusuf and me on the TFB set with Sonia Rehman Qureshi who makes it so easy to be a guest on the show. Thanks Hafza, Sonia, AJ and the team.
